From a curmudgeon's point of view.....
I have lived in a few really nice neighborhoods, and have enjoyed my neighbors, local parks, libraries, etc. I have not enjoyed rent, mortgages, taxes, ever-rising utility bills, barking dogs that my neighbors can't or won't control, homeless people, street crime, etc.
Since I have begun living in my vehicle (I started in a Chevy Blazer S10 and moved up to a Chevy G20 van) I have been able to choose my neighborhood and change it whenever I see fit. I have made many friends who I keep up with by email and phone, and meet with them when our travel paths cross. I feel like the neighborhood I belong to is an expanded one, covering the entire United States. Perhaps it will grow to include Canada and Mexico. Obviously, if you have a love for the land, and are fortunate enough to have an idyllic spot, this isn't for you.
It sure works for me.
